feature request. .ability to skip certain videos?

Sometimes I would like to be able to skip certain videos and still be able to complete a module but currently this isnt supported.. perhaps a third condition of "skipped" should be added in addition to watched/not watched.

Why? Well some videos are too basic so instead of spending my time watching them, i would rather just skip them. Other times videos don't apply to me e.g. In the android track they show setting up Windows/Linux/Mac in 3 separate videos and I just watched the one which is applicable to me.

Hello Shez,

Watching videos are not required to complete a course. However, if you're looking to receive the green completed check mark and point for watching the video, you can up the video speed for faster results. Simply open multiple tabs of videos you deem as basic, mute your system, and come back in 10 minutes or so.

Again, completing videos are not required to receive a badge.

Treehouse Video Speed

I already do this but i dont think it is really a "good" solution..

I think the idea is you get a point for watching a video, but I can understand why this might be an issue. Letting Johnny Thunder know for Treehouse's consideration
